Manta is officially the Maldives BEST Surf Charter

World Surfaris are excited to announce that their Premier surf charter vessel, Manta Cruise has taken out the Maldives #1 surf charter award for 2017. 

The announcement was made at the annual Maldives tourism awards held earlier in December. 

Over the past 7 seasons Manta remains one of the most highly sought after surf charters sailing the Male and Central Atolls. World Surfaris Marketing Manager, Josh Allen put Manta’s success down to the experienced crew & skipper and the invaluable knowledge of its surf guide, Ali Khushruwan who also took out the Maldives best surf guide award for 2017 adding another feather to the cap of the World Surfaris / Manta Cruise team. 

Josh says, “Manta provides a unique guest experience that offers flexible schedules to the Male and Central Atolls. Pricing has remained affordable without huge price hikes considering the supply in demand, it suits our customer demographic well and caters not only to groups of guys or girls on their annual surf charter but we are starting to find a lot more couples and families are choosing Manta for their holidays. If they don’t feel like surfing or they are surfed out, guests can grab a SUP off the dhoni and paddle around the islands, learn to scuba dive, go fishing and of course sit back and relax on their tri deck floating mansion. She ticks all the boxes”.

If you aren’t sold yet, Manta also offers a photgraphy/videography service on select charters throughout the season. Their scuba diving instructor, Thomas doubles up as the multimedia man and can capture your entire surf trip for an affordable fee. You can see some of Tom’s work below from a trip in August 2017. 


Manta Cruise is currently offering early bird discounts for 2018 sailings. This is the best time to book her out and have something to look forward to in 2018! 

Welcome to World Surfaris, how can we help?
